When making this low carb cauliflower breadsticks, it is essential to use waxed paper or parchment paper on the tray to remove the dough easily. Also, it is important to mix the mixture by hand using a spoon instead of a blender so we won’t crush the cauliflower mixture. When you finish baking and remove the tray from the oven, let it stand for a few minutes before removing the bread from the waxed paper to avoid breaking it.

You can season the top with different herbs of your choice. I chose oregano and fresh rosemary, but you can use cilantro or any other herb. This is a basic keto cauliflower breadsticks recipe and leaves you a lot of room for creativity. You can accompany with more mozzarella cheese or add salami, the spread keto tomato sauce on top.

How to Make Low Carb Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Prepare the Cauliflower: Wash and dry the cauliflower. Remove any leaves and chop into small florets.

Make Cauliflower Rice: Place the florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble the size of rice grains. This is the same process used to make riced cauliflower hash browns.

Microwave the Cauliflower: In a heat-safe bowl, combine the cauliflower rice and butter. Microwave for 1.5 minutes.

Prepare the Dough: In a mixing bowl, combine the microwaved cauliflower rice, almond flour, rosemary, oregano, eggs, and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.


Shape the Dough: Transfer the mixture to a baking tray lined with wax paper and spread it out evenly.

How to store cauliflower breadsticks

Store cauliflower breadsticks in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. For longer storage, wrap them tightly and freeze for up to a month.

How to reheat cauliflower breadsticks

To reheat cauliflower breadsticks, place them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes or until heated through, ensuring they retain their crispiness. To heat up cauliflower breadsticks in an air fryer, set the temperature to 350°F (175°C) and heat for 3-5 minutes or until they’re warmed through and regain their crispiness. Alternatively, you can warm them in a microwave for 1-2 minutes, but the oven method is preferred for best texture.

What to serve with cauliflower cheese breadsticks

You can serve cauliflower cheese breadsticks with sugar-free marinara sauce or a creamy avocado dip or eat it as a meal with a serving of roasted meat.

Should I squeeze water out of cauliflower when making breadsticks?

Yes, you should squeeze out as much water as possible from the cauliflower when making breadsticks. Removing excess moisture ensures the breadsticks have a firmer texture and prevents them from becoming too soggy or falling apart.

Why are my cauliflower breadsticks soggy?

Cauliflower breadsticks can become soggy if there’s too much moisture retained in the cauliflower. This can happen if the cauliflower isn’t properly drained and squeezed of excess water after ricing or steaming. Additionally, using too many wet ingredients or not baking them long enough can also contribute to a soggy texture.
